Why We Call It "The Big Con"
Conservative government during the past few years has failed—even some conservatives acknowledge that. But the problem is not just that conservatism has failed to live up to its promise; it is that conservatism cannot live up to its promise.
This website is dedicated to exposing on a daily basis the conservative Big Con: promising small government and delivering disdain for government; offering prosperity for all and delivering cronyism and favoritism for the rich; crusading for morality but embracing ends-justify-the-means shortcuts and doctrinaire sectarianism; claiming to stand for liberty and security while actually eroding them, both at home and abroad.
Because of the failures and inherent contradictions, conservative leaders have to work overtime to keep the Big Con going. Here you'll find information and ideas to help put a stop to the Big Con and open the way for a government that works for all of us.
